The former Grand Mufti of Egypt, Ali Gomaa, and the Anglican Bishop of Egypt, Mouneer Hanna Anis, gave keynote addresses in early June as Nanyang Technological University launched its post-graduate Studies of Inter-Religious Relations in Plural Societies program.
Both leaders spoke on the theme of working together as a way of promoting national unity in Egypt.
Tony Tan, president of Singapore, received the leaders, and he assured them both that Singapore will stand with Egypt in the months ahead.
The Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong, also received them and wrote on his Facebook page: “I could see that Sheikh Dr. Ali Gomaa and Archbishop Dr. Mouneer are good friends, working closely together to promote peace and harmony between Muslims and Christians there.”
